If you want to have a look it’s best to stop and wander into the small park. A good place for a quick break and a cup of tea. Built in 1903 the water tower is found beside Resthaven Resthome in Paine Park – part of the Cambridge greenbelt on the corner of Vogel Street and Hamilton Road SH1 on the western edge of Cambridge.
A reader reminds me that athletics meetings were held on Victoria Square – formerly known as the Government Acre – before the move to Athletic Park on the Greenbelt at the Hamilton Road (SH1) Vogal Street corner. As I recall running at least the one meeting on the square the move must have happened around 1960 when I was intermediate / middle school age – please correct me if I am wrong. Athletic Park is on the left as you slow for the 50k sign travelling into Cambridge from the north west on the Hamilton Cambridge road.
